Christmas: why give the gift of adopting a beehive or an olive tree?
“Christmas comes when it arrives!” said an old Italian commercial for a well-known panettone cake, and that is why we must be ready for the most magical day of the year.
So what could be better than getting organised in time for gifts and Christmas dinner details? Buying personalised gifts for your loved ones, carefully choosing paper, ribbons and greeting cards to make choreographed packages, drawing up the guest list and sending them elegant invitations, all while taking your time and sipping a fine wine.
Fascinating, isn’t it? …but all this generally remains a dream… 😳
Because Christmas for most of us is full of confusion, of gifts made and thought of at the last minute, of races to the market at the photo finish.
How many of us, for example, have run out of ideas for a Christmas present for a close friend or family member, looking for something different from the previous year that might surprise them with an original and sophisticated idea?
Christmas: adopting of a beehive or an olive tree as a gift
In this case, giving the gift of a beehive or an olive tree are ideas that respond perfectly to this type of need. They are perfect gifts for those who love Made in Italy products that are the result of responsible production, inspired by criteria of sustainability and respect for nature and who care about environmental issues.
Adopting a beehive or adopting an olive tree means feeling closer to nature and getting closer to local production.
A project that introduces us to a world, the agricultural world, whose truest and most sincere side is still little known.
In short, a gift suitable for lovers of nature and good food and, as a Norwegian friend told us referring to his adopted olive trees, ‘to create a bond with Tuscany, and know that you always have a place to come back to’. 😍
These gifts are certainly alternative and very ‘green’ (a word that has become very fashionable recently).
We’re not just talking about being able to enjoy excellent artisan honey or 100% Tuscan olive oil, but about helping to save nature, protecting the environment and enhancing products made with love!
